Caring for our Country
Caring for our Country is one way the Australian Government funds environmental management of our natural resources by supporting communities, farmers and other land managers to protect Australia's natural environment and sustainability.
The Australian Government is investing $2 billion to achieve a real and measurable difference to Australia’s environment. Caring for our Country funds projects across the country to achieve national targets - projects that improve biodiversity and sustainable farm practices. This funding supports regional natural resource management groups, local, state and territory governments, Indigenous groups, industry bodies, land managers, farmers, Landcare groups and communities.
Caring for our Country is supporting the Tuggerah Lakes Estuary Restoration project by providing $8.66 million for Stage 1 and has committed a further $11.34 million for Stage 2, which is due for completion in 2013. Read more.
